Beyond The Gate


Your chest is closed
Like shutters are in winter gloom
From wind, the uninvited guest

And gaze like weathervane
Holds on to home, its gate and fence
Despite turning from east to west

In you there's night
The loving palm that covers all;
You're hiding shadows from the sun

Path to eon
Has no end but you say you're on your way
To hold me when the crowds are gone

I'm not afraid
Of iron grating, doors and locks
As long as I am bound with you

Sandglass may keep
Grains rolling down but time will find
A way to flee and we will too

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
